This game was very strange... and very fun. Makes me want to live under the sea... cue Sebastian. Great work. Can't wait to see what you make next!

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think there is a game created for this jam that is as colorful, creative, and quirky as this! This game has a big personality and was fun to play. I like the story book opening and ending which separated itself from the main gameplay aesthetic. Gameplay begins 20:56 **

This was fun, this was just pure silly which is something I think more games need. I hope to see more absurd games or whatever other ideas you have.

Had much fun playing it, I love the art style the writing and the cute Doggie. Would love to see more games from you.

Also what have u used for dialoge, I would guess Dialogic.

Made my own system as my needs were simpler than the complexity Dialogic offers - planning on making a postmortem vid in the next couple weeks discussing aspects like this, would probably recommend Dialogic in most cases though!

Would love to see a video of u talking about this Game.

This game is just as absurd and enjoyable as it comes off as! Really had a blast with this. I posted a review on the jam submission page, and made a playthrough video below: 

Is there a fullscreen option?
